09 November 2020
Some users on the beta channel received the stable software instead (which will wipe the phone). OnePlus created an app to prevent that.

My data was backed up to Google drive however as the software update renders it a different device (or earlier android version) the backup was not able to be restored. If you are doing the update, back up via smart switch and move the file to a pen drive.

What else do you expect from another crap chinese company? Sooner or later they all will be gone just like Huawei. The main question is how much data would they steal from people in the meantime.

Is this a joke? Official (?!) suggestion is to install some apk file from unknown google drive address? If this is not a joke then the way how OnePlus is handling whole situation is completely ridiculous and unproffesional.

ah yes Oxygen Updater is 100% totally made by OnePlus

Nobody upgrades to beta versions.
Upgrade only when final version is available
